NBA Lockout Sends Timofey Mozgov And Chris Quinn To Europe

The NBA lockout is creating plenty of rumors about All-Stars heading to Europe, but the current labor impasse is sending some of the lesser-known veterans to Europe as well. The latest, according to the world wide web, are Denver Nuggets center Timofey Mozgov and San Antonio Spurs sharpshooter Chris Quinn.

Mozgov started 14 of his 45 games split between the Nuggets and Knicks last season after beginning his professional career in Russia, and the 7-footer will now be taking his talents back to the homeland after signing with BC Khimki in Moscow. Mozgov still has three years on his NBA contract, however, so he's apparently negotiated an NBA out according to Sportando.

Quinn will be joining Mozgov with Khimki according to SoloBasket. Quinn is by no means a household name, but the former Notre Dame point guard has impressively carved himself out a five-year NBA career despite going undrafted in the 2006 NBA Draft. This will be the shooters first foray into basketball outside of the NBA, but as a free agent, it makes quite a bit of sense that he's taking the plunge.

Here is an up-to-date list of all of the NBA players that have headed to Europe thus far, though be sure to continue checking this StoryStream for all of the rumors as the big-name players continue to evaluate their options elsewhere.
